One man was found fatally shot inside a car that crashed into a Prince George’s County home Saturday, and another man was found with a gunshot wound nearby, police said.

Prince George's County police said officers responded about 10:30 p.m. to the home on Forest Terrace near Kentland Park in the Landover area.

Video from the scene shows a sedan stopped near what appears to be a door into the home, with a large hole in the wall.

When investigating the crash, officers noticed a man in the driver's seat had been shot. He died at the scene, police said.

The other man was found nearby, suffering from a gunshot wound. He's expected to survive, police said.

It's unclear how the two men are connected.

The owner of the home said he had gone to bed earlier than usual on Saturday, and that the crash happened about five minutes after he’d gone upstairs. Typically he would've been watching TV with his grandchild.

The force of the crash was enough to knock over a TV in his home, but no one was injured.

Police said detectives were still working to identify a suspect and motive on Sunday morning. Detectives want to hear from anyone who might have information about the shooting.
